“When opportunity knocks, open the door.”
How many times has opportunity knocked on your door and you didn’t answer? Opportunities arise every day. We just need to be aware of them and make the decision to take them or live with the consequences of missing them.
We can all look back at points in our lives when we had opportunities to try something new, to have a unique experience, to learn or to grow. Whenever I miss an opportunity, I feel disappointed. I wonder how the opportunity, if taken, would have impacted my life or given a result I was seeking. I also ponder about opportunities I have taken, and I wonder how my life would have been impacted if I hadn’t seized those opportunities.
What if’s are nothing more than a waste of time. Pay attention to the now.
What are the opportunities you have every day that are available to you in one of these areas: personal, financial, spiritual, professional, health or relationships? Are you taking or missing the opportunities that come knocking on your door? Are you missing out on financial opportunities because you aren’t willing to take a job that isn’t your dream job because you want to hold out for the one that pays more and seems more ideal? Have you considered the financial hit you are taking with each day that you don’t take the less than perfect job? What about earning money while you continue to search for the ideal job?
Are you missing out on an opportunity to create, grow or improve a relationship in your life? What about time for personal growth? Are you missing an opportunity to learn something new, try something you have never tried or do something creative? Is there an opportunity to improve your health that you haven’t taken? Every day is full of opportunities!! “When opportunity knocks, open the door!”
